The Safe Road User Award

26 February 2010

Following a successful trial in ten schools in Scotland, this Award is now available UK-wide. It has has been developed in collaboration with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), is now available stems directly from recent initiatives by the UK Government to bring about changes in driving attitudes in the UK. The Award is targeted primarily at young people from 14 to 17 years of age, however it should be emphasised that it will be open to all potential candidates irrespective of age.

The aim of the Safe Road User Award  is to build positive attitudes to road use and to help young people to take responsibility for using the roads safely. Young people who become proficient road users at an early stage will be able to carry these attitudes and behaviours throughout life. This, in turn, should result in fewer deaths and serious injuries among road users. Being a safe and proficient road user is a significant life skill which this award will contribute to developing.
